Autumn Retreat in Finland with Mikko Seppinen

Welcome to an inspirational, fun and uplifting Ashtanga yoga weekend retreat in a colourful Finnish Autumn! This is a special opportunity to submerge into your practice in the magical spirit of Tuomiston Kartano.

In addition to enjoying the unique atmosphere, delicious food, good company and peaceful surroundings, this retreat focuses on the essence of the Ashtanga system: subtle workings of the breath, vinyasa and other foundational tools.  Yielding everyday commitments and distancing yourself even just for a few days from the daily grind, gives you the chance to regain a renewed and positive perspective towards life.

About the retreat

We will gather together on Friday afternoon and start with a light and grounding breathwork and asana session. We will start both mornings with a moment of silence followed by Ashtanga Yoga Mysore style practice. In the small group each student will be individually supported. Afternoon classes will focus on pranayama, theory, and deepening your relationship to the yoga practices and yourself.

Since we are in Finland, we’ll have a traditional sauna heated, together with a hot water tub, on Saturday evening.

All levels with an established practice are welcome. Teaching will be in English.
